December 21 2014
Sinjar Mountain

Khansaa Shamdeen Ali is a is a young Syrian Kurdish surgical nurse who became a refugee in Iraqi Kurdistan. Hearing of the desperate plight of Iraqi Yazidis trapped on Mount Sinjar under siege by Islamic State forces she volunteered to provide medical help to the Yazidis. Khansaa was transported to the mountain by military helicopter where she remained for three months tending to the medical needs of the hundreds of people unable to leave the area and Peshmerga fighters who were defending the mountain..
During this time she built a strong bond with the Yazidis and the Peshmergas. Khansaa says she does not want anything in return for work and she is just happy to have been able to help.

Khnassa assures that she does not want anything in return of her favors and she is just happy to serve the refugees.

Transcription:
(03:31)

Interviewer: All the medications are available with you?

Khansaa: yes of course, Dr. Nizar is doing the best he can to provide all the medications.

My name is Khansaa Shamdeen Ali, from Syrian Kurdistan, Derek area in Al-Hasakeh province. I have been here for three months, I treat the Yazidis and the Peshmerga fighters. Sometimes i get 400 patients per day, I have a very good relationship with them, and with the Yazidis.

I am also a refugee, my family is residing in Dar Shokran. When i heard about the situation, i immediately came to the health directory of Dohuk and spoke with Dr. Nizar, and I asked him to allow me to help the Yazidi refugees, so he said that they support me and they are willing to help me with whatever I need, I told them that I want nothing but to help people. Dr. Nizar helped me with everything, I stayed in Khaneqi for a month and after that i came here to the mountain, i have been in the mountain for three months now. I volunteered here to serve my country and help the Kurds. We receive all types of medications, even the medication required for surgical procedures.

Yesterday we received 12-13 people who were injured on the front and we treated them.

Interviewer: Do you do surgeries here?

Khansaa: yes we do, then we transfer them to Dohuk.

Yes Of course i have a degree, without my degree i cannot serve them. I have a degree from the health institution, Surgery section.

Once there was a strong conflict between ISIS and the Peshmerga fighters, and ISIS came close to the mountain, and there were many injuries, some of them were abdominal and shoulder injuries, i treated them and they stayed here with me for four days then were transferred to Dohuk and now they are fine.

This is the weapon of Fadel al-Mirani, He gave it to me as a present because I served the Yazidis. They said that they are very proud of me to be here in this situation, in the cold and the starvation and in a place where there i no bathrooms or toilets. I count myself as one of the Peshmerga, so he gave me this present because i served the Yazidis.

Some of the births that happened here, they gave two of the girls my name, and i personally named two boys, and i gave three girls my sister's name and two girls, I gave them my niece's name.

The Battle in Ukraine's Frontline
Donestk
By Arturas Morozovas
14 Nov 2014

The protests that flared up on the main square of Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kiev sought to topple the corrupt Soviet government. One year after the start of the Maidan revolution, the country is fighting the Russia-backed separatism in the Donbas region.

Despite the mutual ceasefire agreement laid out in the Minsk Memorandum signed on September 19, gunfire continues on the daily basis in the east of the country.

During several days spent on the front lines near the Donetsk Airport, the motivation and patriotism of the Ukrainians are evident. Young volunteers, many of whom are still in the university or have recently graduated, were pacifists a year ago, but now they can handle weapons and are not afraid to die for their country. The Ukrainian Army is just behind their lines, but key tasks are entrusted to the volunteers of the ultranationalist organisation the Right Sector, and the Dnipro battalion.

The voluntary army feeding on nationalism and armed with trophy weapons captured from the separatists sends a clear message to the Ukrainian government: “When we are done in the Eastern Ukraine, we are coming for you.”

“We have never believed in the illusion of Independent Ukraine. The government is still staffed with the same Soviet relics that take pleasure in putting spokes in the wheels of the European Ukraine,” says Yashkin, the volunteer of the Right Sector.
